Dundee United V Motherwell

Recommended Posts

So first game since the split, friday night football live on ESPN not involving Hibernian. Unbeaten in the last six SPL games.

 

Fancy us to take three points in this game, 3-1 Higdon x2 & McFadden.

Big chance what with caley facing the smellies. 3-2 to us, higgy, faddy and ojamaa!

If we can get out the blocks fast this is a game there for the taking. They'll want to bounce back after that cup loss but surely have to be a little physically and mentally drained by the 120 minutes of effort put in. If we can get on top early and not go behind I'd hope we could get the result.

 

Which would have the bonus of making Celtic need to get something against ICT, big weekend ahead!

I still worry about us playing on the telly on a Friday night , these fixtures have not always worked out well for us. Tannadice is always a difficult place to go as well but we're on a good run now so maybe we can get a positive result against a very inconsistent United. Maybe 2-2? I'd like to see Ojamma get a goal or two before the end of the season, his performances deserve it and it's not quite worked out for him this season.

You're only as good as your last Friday night live on the telly fixture so we are fucking amazing.

Add to the fact is our last trip to Tannadice was a 2-1 win, it's an away win banker ;)

 

Anyway, agree with the last score, 2-1 - x2 for Higdon and a welcome to the 25 a season club.

I'd rather play them up there than face another soaking up pressure and hitting us on the break performance off Utd like the last couple at Fir Park.

Big opportunity with ICT playing celtic. Im saying a tight 3-2 victory in a big step towards 2nd place.

And also will the drum be there? Remember folk saying they were always going to boycott tannadice after being refused entry a few years back, not sure if that was true or not.

At the risk of getting a negative rep on this post I will say this. I doubt Dundee United will let them in if its the same moody boot who decides.

 

As for the game, hoping for a 3-0 win! Higdon Hat-trick!

They are very good at counter attacking football, a style that has troubled us in the past. However I reckon we will at least get a point, with Inverness hopefully losing to Celtic.

 

I'll go for a hard fought 2-2 draw.

A hard one to call, Utd are good at breaking fast and could easily catch us out but their defence is dodgy so we will also create chances. Going to go for a 2-2 draw.

It's a tricky one to call.

 

It may be wishful thinking to hope that with them going out the Cup they won't have the same intensity about them as they might have done if they were now playing for Cup Final places.

 

Having said that I don't think their actual result or performance will have any bearing on Friday's night's game as The Skipper above appears to be implying. I remember going to Firhill a week after our Semi Final against Rangers at Hampden a few years back thinking the same kind of display as the Semi Final would surely get us the points. We were awful. A shambolic shadow of the team that had been so good a week previous. Because you can hit the heights one week trying to reach a final, doesn't mean you are going to replicate that in a league game the next.

 

Obviously you want a fast start every week but if we could get an early lead and some of the Utd players do have any notions of going through the notions, then that can only be good for us.

 

1-0 Motherwell.

My initial reaction to this thread title is "OH NO NOT AGAIN!". Dundee Utd at Fir Park is the stuff of nightmares.

 

However, perhaps 120 minutes of high tempo football at the weekend will mean they are a wee bit leggy and we will have a bit more in the tank.

 

By the way Dundee Utd are the only team to beat us at Fir Park in the league since Hibs beat us on 26th October 2012.

 

Unfortunately they have managed it twice.

Fuck!

 

I think I just tried to convince myself that I had three games left to go to this season instead of just two.

 

Oh no! Just two more games.

this is a huge game for and taking something from should mean we go up to inverness in second place, i expect it to be nervy but i also expect faddy, law and lasley to rise to the occasion.

 

in both games at home against united dodgy finishing cost us, i'd stick faddy up front with higdon for extra goal threat. carswell in for ojaama who can be an impact sub.

I'm going for 4-2, with a mixture of great attacking play and semi-comedic defending. Oh, and Higdon for the away hat-trick, after a Faddy equaliser.

We absolutely robbed them up there!

 

2-0 up in 10 minutes with 2 counter attacks, then backs to the wall for 80 minutes!

 

:lol:

 

I'd take the same again, but it wasnt pretty!

That's true, but then I thought they were fortunate to win the first game at Fir Park.

it was backs to the wall second half but we had a good few chances in the first half after we scored.

 

we defended brilliantly in the second half but were completely unable to hold onto the ball in their half.

Utd have point blank refused entry to the drum so our bus is a non runner, thats atleast 50 bodies who would've been there who now will not.
